What Does the iPhone XR Have to Offer?

There has been a great deal of publicity surrounding the release of the iphone XS and the XS Max. However, one of the most notable drawbacks associated with either of these models involved their respective price tags.  Apple seems have taken this factor into account when developing the much-anticipated iPhone XR. As it is set to be released in October, nothing has yet been confirmed in regards to the exact specifications.  However, this does not necessarily signify that we cannot predict what is in store.  Let’s take a look at how the iPhone XR could represent a great buy.

Compromise, but Not in Terms of Quality

The XR will be priced a staggering 200 pounds less than the iPhone XS Max and this is arguably the most important feature of the phone.  However, such an amenable cost does not mean that developers skimped on the necessities.  To begin with, this model boasts a screen on 6.1 inches;not bad for a price of under 700 pounds. It is also available in yellow and blue.  While not as streamlined as the metallic hues associated with the other models, these pastel-like colours will undoubtedly attract positive attention.

Another useful feature that is surprising to be found in a middle-of-the-range model is that the XR contains facial recognition software.  In other words, the unit can be unlocked simply by staring into the screen. This is an excellent security feature although it can always be disabled in favour of a traditional PIN code.

Finally, the iPhone Xr is equipped with the very same A12 Bionic chipset seen in the XS and the XS Max.  This is the most powerful processor to be included with the line of Apple phones and while it might slightly reduce battery life, performance issues and potential lag times should no longer be concerns (even when running extremely memory-taxing applications).

Other Notable Technical Specifications

The iPhone XR will offer up to 16 hours of continuous battery life before it will need to be recharged.  It weighs only 6.8 ounces, so handling the unit while out and about should not present any issues.  A sturdy aluminium outer frame offers a superior level of durability and while not billed as being completely waterproof, it will still stand up to the accidental spill.  Users have three options in regards to storage capacity: 64, 128 or 256 gigabytes.  64 gigabytes are standard and upgrades will obviously impact the price of the unit.  Its rear camera offers a respectable 12 megapixels of resolution while the front-facing unit is equipped with 7 megapixels.  While not as impressive as the smart HDR technology employed in other iPhone XS models, such resolutions should still be sufficient for most requirements.

All in all, the Apple iPhone XR is a great middle-of-the-road phone if you have been looking for an upgrade and you cannot afford the more expensive models.
